With all the colds going on around here over the past month or two, I was inspired to do a little something about it. We tried to rest and drink plenty of water and hot tea, but there wasn’t much relief at night with the congestion. That’s when I stumbled on this recipe for a vapor rub for kids on Simple Organics. I modified it a bit and LOVED the results!
1 oz coconut oil
1 oz olive oil
6 drops tea tree essential oil
4 drops eucalyptus essential oil
4 drops lavender essential oil
Warm the coconut oil until liquid. Combine all ingredients. Let sit until solidified at room temperature or in the fridge.
It was wonderful to use on the baby, big kids, and even myself. It did seem to help us all get a little more sleep at night!
